Brewing Tea in a See-Through Glass Teapot May be the Most Relaxing Thing You will See Today

Remember this nursery rhyme?

I’m a little teapot

Short and stout

Here is my handle

Here is my spout.

When I get all steamed up

Hear me shout

“Tip me over and pour me out!”

This childhood classic painted for us the picture of a teapot. ‘Short’ and ‘stout,’ and usually made from ceramics or porcelain – teapots like these are usually found in our dear grandmother’s kitchen cupboard. I remember that when using my grandmother’s teapot, once I pour out the tea, the leaves would always be stuck to the bottom of my cup. I would even have enough tea leaves to read your fortune. It’s a tad bit annoying too if the tea leaves get stuck in my teeth. Yikes!

It’s fortunate for us that we can now brew our own cup of tea without using grandma’s teapot – thanks to American designer Joey Roth. Roth has created the “Sorapot,” a simple, modern teapot made from glass and stainless steel. Designed to brew loose leaves, the glass chamber lets the leaves fully unfurl while they steep (this is surely fascinating and relaxing to watch, I promise). You’re sure to get a great cup of tea as completely unfurled leaves allow the taste and flavors to reach its full potential.

And remember the leaves-stuck-in-your-teeth-or-at-the-bottom-of-your-cup problem? You can say ‘goodbye’ to that as the Sorapot has a cleverly built-in sieve right next to the spout.

After more than four years of development, the Sorapot is now ready for pre-order at US$285.

Before you know, folks would be inviting themselves over for tea at your place. Or even if you don’t drink tea, the design makes for a great conversation piece, and admit it – it looks very pretty! There’s no hiding this teapot in your kitchen cupboard!
